Why Did I Pick WordPress.com?

Link to old post: Three Favorite Reasons 

How I would re-write that post today:

“A few months into the blogging community on WordPress, here are three reasons why I love this website:

  1. Building Connections- I get to connect with bloggers from one country to another who share the same interests I have when it boils down to writing and photography.
  2. Become Editor-In-Chief- You are your own writer and boss. It’s how you format the story that makes or breaks your blogging career. You also learn how to grow as a writer and set deadlines on your own time.
  3. It’s a Free Website with Unique Themes- If you create a blog with the intention of building your portfolio in photography, there are themes that are free but unique enough for it to look professional.

What reasons do have for joining the WordPress community?”

New Post of Not Showing Fear in Writing Skills:

Link to the older post: No Fear in Writing Skills

Here is how I would write this post today:

“From the beginning of my early school years through the end of my college career, my writing styles were horrendous. Meaning, my sentences were run-on, incomplete with a lack of clarity and knowledge.

After creating a blog, I realize that my writing style will change as time marches forward. Five years later, it did. Blogging has given me confidence but it also helped me recognize the flaws which can be corrected by patiently rearranging my sentence structures and use a set of terms to make my posts flow smoothly.

Remember, we shall not become ashamed of our writing styles but take the time to critique it and combine your stories in a unique manner. Secondly, ask relatives and peers to evaluate your work. The final step is to receive constructive criticism, learn from your mistakes and grow as a blogger.”

New Post of Blogging & Journals: Similar or Different?

Here is a link to the old post: Journals and Blogs Similar?

Here is how I would write that post today:

“What’s your purpose for creating a blog? Did you create one to expand upon your writing skills? Perhaps sign up and use it as an online journal to vent out your frustrations?

It depends on the necessary tools to which you can utilize your blog and discover what captures a reader’s attention. For some individuals, they blog to write stories while others use to find a voice in a cause for two different intentions: 1) they are passionate about their dreams for advocacy or 2) they have a voice crying out for help.

Everyone has their own definition of blogging and what their intentions are to create one. Journals are hand-written, containing personal information to vent out anger while bloggers create a website to gain experience in the media industry as a hobby.  In ways, journals and blogs can be the same while they can also be different. “
